    sweet!!! Curt from TFsource mentioned he'd heard a rumor about this in his last update, glad to see it's happening, since i didn't have the cash for the first go-round!

    Well, some places got shorted on their orders and some people are scrambling on ebay and such trying to get one as a result. If someone missed out the first time, it looks like they'll still have their chance to get one.

    Since the first run sold so well, maybe TakaraTomy will put a greater focus on the Transformers brand.

    If nothing else, it's one in the eye for Ebay scalpers.

    I'd like to think that they'll reinvest the profits directly into the Masterpiece line.

    so long as they don't use it to create Masterpiece versions of the mini figures packaged with KP toys.

    It 'd have been a shame if a toy with such awesomeness was limited to one production run...
